At first glance, the phrases “federal website” and “designed for kids” seem diametrically opposed. After all, how could one of the world’s most complicated bureaucracies ever hope to communicate with children? But that’s exactly what the Every Kid in a Park team did. In only a handful of months, a small team of designers wrote and launched a coherent, compelling government website— and they did it all at a fourth-grade reading level. From testing to approvals, this talk speaks frankly about challenges faced (and solutions uncovered) throughout the creation of everykidinapark.gov.

  2. 2. Users only read ~20% of what’s on the page.
  3. 3. Where can I use my Paper Voucher or Federal Interagency Annual 4th Grade Pass? The Paper Voucher or Federal Interagency Annual 4th Grade Pass are only accepted at federal lands and waters. Forest Service, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, US Army Corps of Engineers, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association sites honor the pass where Entrance or Standard Amenity Fee(s) are charged. Please contact a federal land or water site directly if you have a question about pass acceptance and fees:

  6. 6. “The Parent section doesn’t adjust the tone to its audience.”
  7. 7. But we lived as usual. Everyone does, most of the time. Whatever is going on is as usual. Even this is as usual, now. We lived, as usual, by ignoring. Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it. — Margaret Atwood
